Metro have a rather unwanted claim for Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern, as they claim that one of the club’s top targets may snub a summer move.
The publication have noted that Julian Draxler may choose to stay at his current club Schalke, and reject the idea of a move this summer.
The Bundesliga side are confident that the German starlet will remain with them, and as one of our punters notes, even if the player did decide to leave, the price tag on his head would be so large that Schalke could be considered winners regardless.
The problem with a move in the winter boiled down to monetary issues, and tavern regulars are doubtful that Arsene Wenger would be prepared to shell out £37 million on Draxler’s talents.
Arsenal were title contenders until the end of February and our regulars note that it is the same old story, meaning that we think Wenger does need to spend big once more in the summer.
Given that Draxler has a bundle of talent and his whole career ahead of him, we think he would be perfect for Arsenal this summer.
Having been linked with the Gunners for so long, is it a matter of when and not if in regards to Draxler joining Arsenal? Let us know your thoughts below.
